Abstract

There are various fabrication techniques used for depositing the material over the surface of substrate to enhance the surface properties. The need of surface modification leads to the use of many techniques which are not only economical but also eco-friendly in terms of producing pollution. The microwave route has emerged as one of the tool used for the application of surface engineering, where the materials like ceramics, metals and alloys and various composites can easily be deposited. The microwave route utilizes the heat of the waves, which further melts the material to be deposited on the substrate. In this article, the application of microwave energy in the form of various techniques has been studied for the fabrication of materials by joining, melting and cladding
